"Sadly he was right..."
Funny that we still have folks around here that believe Romney's malarkey about "gifts" and all. Didja hear what all the other Republicans are saying about ol' Mittens?
Marco Rubio, what do you think?
"I don’t want to rebut him point by point," Rubio said of Romney. "I would just say to you, I don’t believe that we have millions and millions of people in this country that don’t want to work. I think we have millions of people in this country that are out of work and are dependent on the government because they can't find a job."
Sen. Kelly Ayotte, how's bout you?
"I don't agree with the comments," Ayotte said.
Bobby Jindal, give us your take.
“Two points on that: One, we have got to stop dividing the American voters. We need to go after 100 percent of the votes, not 53 percent. We need to go after every single vote.And, secondly, we need to continue to show how our policies help every voter out there achieve the American Dream, which is to be in the middle class, which is to be able to give their children an opportunity to be able to get a great education. … So, I absolutely reject that notion, that description. I think that’s absolutely wrong.”
Reagan-era strategist Ed Rogers, give us your blunt opinion.
“There is no Romney wing in the party that he needs to address,” said Ed Rogers, a longtime Republican strategist. “He never developed an emotional foothold within the GOP so he can exit the stage anytime and no one will mourn.”
I love that one.
Virginia representative Tom Davis...
“It shows a huge misreading of the electoral landscape. A rather elitist misread. Where does he think his votes came from in rural America?”
Florida Gov. Rick Scott.
“It’s wrong, it’s not true,” Scott told POLITICO, adding: “What we’ve got to do is say we want every vote, we want to take care of every citizen in our state.
Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad:
“I don’t think it’s helpful,I guess my feeling is that we need to turn the page, and we need to focus on the future and not make excuses for the past.”
Sounds like Mitt has become the Republican "past" pretty quick. He may have to come to WSB to find someone willing to believe his cr*p, because all the muckety-mucks in the party are ready to sing a chorus of "so long, it's been good to know ya!"
PS- History will record, Mitt, that you couldn't even beat an African-American guy with 8 percent unemployment and you had a BILLION dollars to make your case. Buh-bye.
